The "Duplex" Open Circuit Battery.

Quite a novelty in open circuit batteries has recently been brought out by the Eclipse Electric Company, of this city. The battery, which is illustrated in the accompanying engraving, consists of a glass jar made of heavy pressed glass about six inches high and four and one-half inches square. Its distinguishing feature, however, is a glass partition which divides the jar into two compartments or cells, all being made in one piece in a special mold. The cover carries the elements for two cells, having only two binding posts, as shown. The cover is made of a pressed and polished material in exact imitation of hard rubber, and the whole presents a neat appearance.
